Not sure what to say?

Dear Jackie, I was so sorry and shocked to hear of the passing of Mike! What a great person! I hope to attend the funeral on June 1. Blessings, Sister Kathleen

Mr. Bull is the reason I am where I am today. Words can not express the impact he has had on my life. Because of his journey and the had the experiences he had, I was able to have mine. I become a head coach and a mentor to so many young women in athletics and education thanks to his hand in my journey. I hope I have made him proud. He truly loved all of us and he looked after all of us. He will be missed. Thank you Mr. Bull.

There have only been two men in my life thatI have loved and admired, one being my father and the other Mike Bull. I Find at this time very difficult to put into word how much he will be missed. So I leave Jackie with this. When you look at sky at night remember this: perhaps they are not stars but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy! To Jackie I would like to say, my thoughts and prayers are with you always!

Mike was a colleague but more than that my good friend. He and I and Jack Rugerro had more laughs around Maureen O'Connor's desk - usually at Bill Clarke's expense. He was one of the most likable people I've ever known. Dominus Vobiscum, good friend.

Condolences to the family and may Mike rest in peace with God's graces.

Jackie ,
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief. Dave Brennan

I went to St. Mary’s and St. Joe’s with Mike. I have many memories of Mike in school, on the Basketball Court just everyday activities. I know Mike became a great Leader as a Teacher and Guidance Counselor, because he had that kind of Personality. I talked to Mike about a month ago and regret not getting a hold of him sooner. RIP MY FRIEND

Rip Mike...God bless my friend....
Sincerest condolences to the entire family. Keep your chins up and keep the memories alive.
My first year teaching at St. Joe's I taught 3 freshman and 3 sophomore English classes. Mike was in one of my soph classes and as an assistant football coach worked with Mike on the field. Quite a young man what a wonderful legacy as a teacher coach and counselor.

Many of my fondest memories growing up include memories made with Mike.
From playing in the neighborhood to riding up to St. Joe’s with Mr. McGuire we had many shared experiences.
Ironically we both became Phys. Eders. and School Counselors.
I loved his smile and his presence always brought joy to the guys from St. Mary’s in Williamstown.
Mike was a great guy and buddy growing up!
Very sad to hear of Mike’s passing.
